By Lynn Byrne. Noted New York antique dealer, Niall Smith, says in an article in the October Elle Decor, that the collected look is “definitely out.” Granted he calls it the “cluttered look.” But the implication is that decorating with multiple groupings of objects gathered leisurely is no longer fashionable. He adds “simplicity is in.”
Of course, no one likes clutter. But I believe that a home where collections are varied and accumulate over time, still holds great appeal.
